The Party

As part of the 50-year celebration at Klinkhammer, logistics experts discussed the latest trends in intralogistics.
On June 30th, 50 years Klinkhammer was on the program – but it wasn’t supposed to be a classic anniversary celebration. Rather, intralogistics experts and customers were invited to an intensive exchange of ideas on current topics and trends in the industry. The culinary well-being and good entertainment were of course taken care of. And all guests were allowed to take a look at the technical centre and the new building. An all-round successful event. After the welcome, the program started with the keynote speech of Econsio on the pitfalls of project management. The presentation was followed by key notes of Bosch Rexroth on AI-supported robot order picking and of Exotec on shuttle robots. The morning was concluded by the best-practice speech of Frischdienst Walther on the topic of digitization and warehouse automation in the food service. After lunch, the experts were able to visit the new building.

The employees celebrated after the experts
While Thursday was dedicated to the experts and users, the anniversary was celebrated extensively with the employees and their families on Friday, 1 of July. They were the focus of attention on this day. Whether flight simulator with VR goggles, bull riding or photo fun box, XL Carrera track or bouncy castle, there was a lot on offer for entertainment and fun. The sucking pig on the spit and many other delicacies provided for the culinary well-being.

Milestones and company history

The family business was founded in the year 1972. Adolf Klinkhammer started in the basement of his row house as an engineering office with innovative logistics planning. In 1977 he created a second mainstay with the production and assembly of conveyor technology components and in 1980 moved the young company to Wiesbadener Street. Even then, Klinkhammer not only planned complete central warehouses, but also surprised again and again with new and proprietary developments. Some examples have been and still are a multi-order picking system for fast and slow movers, autonomous pallet shuttles or KlinCAT, the multi-level shuttle for containers. The company looks back to a history full of technology milestones, from logistics planning to electronic control technology and system visualization to GUI-tested software, the digital twin or the use of product innovations such as shuttle robots and robotic piece picking. In 2021, the company focused on the optimization and further development of its warehouse management software and thus strengthens its reputation as an IT and digitization specialist for intralogistics.
